CM Punk was putting on 4-5 star matches consistently for at least two years, then he runs into The Rock and has two forgettable matches, only one of them being good. All of Punk's matches since have been 4 stars or higher. Strange, I don't remember Rock having a good match since WrestleMania XIX, and even then, he was in the ring with his greatest opponent ever.

Damn I forgot about those Rock/Punk matches, my bad lol. I guess we'll have to wait in august to see if his work rate improves.

I thought Punk/Taker was brilliant, not going to lie. Punk was down right fantastic in it. From his stuff during Taker's entrance, to his stuff during his control segment to his stuff during the finishing run. Everything he did was great, and that's not just me being a big Punk fan talking, he was legit awesome in it. Punk and Taker are two guys who just know what they're doing in terms of controlling a crowd in the ring through their performances, and while Punk was the star, Taker was great too. Loved Punk being a fighting dickhead and not a chickenshit dickhead, that's exactly how he should be booked. He wasn't scared, he acted like he didn't give a toss and it ruled, usually that might be annoying but Punk makes it work here through his mannerisms and expressions. I absolutely adored the Old School spot, again Punk came off as a guy who knew what he was doing against Taker, he was the champion for over a year, he beat everyone, so he's going to be a threat to Taker kayfabe wise no matter his size because of his tenacity and skill in the ring and he played that role to perfection. I honestly thought the GTS no sell into the Tombstone was ridiculously awesome and I flipped my lid for it. This isn't anyone no selling the GTS, this is The Undertaker at Wrestlemania with his streak on the line avenging his dead father and fighting a guy he's learned through the course of the match is actually really fucking good and might have the win if he lets up for a second. The way he stumbled on to the ropes and then came off as almost possessed and threw Punk up like a child was just really cool to me. Plus I bought that near fall like anybody's business and Punk kicking out was awesome because I legit thought that was it unlike the HHH Tombstones the two previous years. I know people have kicked out of that move before at Mania (recently anyway), but that was HBK, Undertaker's greatest rival, and Triple H who'll obviously make himself look super human, I honestly didn't think they'd have Punk kick out of it. Table spot looked nasty on Punk's end and was the only slight blip in the match for me, it didn't look good for either guy. I really liked the Urn spot, played into the build up and even though that build was awful at least in didn't come off as completely pointless. Taker sitting up in the Vice was another super cool spot, and so was the tombstone reversals and Punk doing Taker's pose, once again coming off as a guy with no fear which is the exact way he needed to be booked in this match for anyone to believe he was a threat. Final Tombstone looked sick too. So glad it didn't turn in to a finisher fest in the slightest, Punk didn't get a nearfall with the GTS either and I didn't mind that, It wasn't really needed to get Punk over because he did that himself through his performance. Having a crowd vocally cheer for him at least 50/50 with Taker is testament to that. Yeah, I thought this was brill. ****1/2

As for other stuff from Mania, HHH/Bork was bad, Rock/Cena was pretty ridiculous but I didn't actually hate it. probably all down to Cena being fucking great in it with his expressions and mannerisms and slight heel tease stuff. The spot where he punked out the rock with the Peoples Elbow and stopped at the ropes and gave him that 'Bitch, please' look was legit amazing.

Great review Bubz.

The only thing I'll differ on is the table bump. Though it wasn't pretty, it was pretty violent, and whether Punk was in fact really hurt or not, I legit was worried about his well being. Watching him continue to fight through also hooked me some, not knowing how much was selling and how much wasn't. Old-school feelings.

I actually think the table bump made the match better. My only major problem is Punk's roll up from the Hell's gate being shitty.

thank god there are all these people pointing out what an awful worker the Rock is.

Escorpion/Dorada wouldn't be anything I'd call MotY.

Great style, and Dorada is immaculate in his spots but that's ultimately what it was - a lightning match that allowed Dorada to just go out there and pop the crowd. I absolutely loathe stage dives at this point. They're over-used and contrived in how the other luchadore simply stands and waits to be bombed. I can only imagine comparing this to a "Top 10 Moves Of ...." video off of Youtube just in match form.

Perhaps deserves a watch to get oneself into Dorada, and I'll add this post to the one in the Lucha thread, but this really isn't a nomination-worthy match. A complete and utter spotfest but Dorada spotfests are, at least, extremely fun. Here's still hoping Negro Casas/Mascara Dorada lives up to my expectations.

Kinda surprised by the positive reviews for HHH/Lesnar. I thought it was really slow and plodding and it bored me on numerous occasions. A big disappointment in my eyes.

Loved Taker/Punk, think it just about gets a ****1/4 rating from me. I was a bit ticked off about Taker's no sell of the GTS (I could understand 'delayed selling' but to basically totally shrug it off was a bit much for my liking), but my God that Urn spot was just about the best nearfall I've seen in years. The way they set it up was PERFECT and for a split second I thought they'd pulled the trigger and Punk was gonna end the streak. Epic stuff right there. And I couldn't help but crack into a massive grin when Punk did Taker's top rope walk, that was joyous.

Don't really get all the hate on Cena/Rock. I was a big fan of the call backs to last year, especially the complete reverse of last year's finish, with Rock getting cocky and going for the Five Knuckle Shuffle. Genius, and I'm so glad Cena cut him off in the same way; that was another tremendous nearfall. Finisher spamming was a bit overkill, especially when they'd done such a good job of employing creative counters earlier in the match. Apart from that I had no real issues. Although seriously guys...can you try and hide the fact that you're both calling spots a little better? Every frickin' submission you could see them yabbering away to each other...

You caught my attention with Negro Casas/Mascara Dorada, when is that going to happen?
